Let (X1(t))0≤t≤1 and (X2(t))0≤t≤1 be two independent continuous centered Gaussian processes with covariance functions R1 and R2. We show that if the covariance functions are of finite p-variation and q-variation respectively and such that p-1+q-1>1, then the Lévy area can be defined as a double Wiener-ItÔ integral with respect to an isonormal Gaussian process induced by X1 and X2. Moreover, some properties of the characteristic function of that generalised Lévy area are studied. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
